    your own interpretation on my words, in a rather forceful, bullying manner?

    I'm sorry he was banned because he won't be around to write some of the good diaries he's written.

    Nice try at putting words in my mouth.

        Punishment that acts as a strong deterrent to send a message to him and anyone else to not out people. Banning certainly accomplishes that.

        I've been outed before in other forums, to my great detriment in personal life. I don't support what Edger did. But I certainly don't have to join in some sort of sweeping, extreme condemnation of Edger AS A PERSON, as if he is permanently deemed so flawed as a human being that he has become untouchable. His act I condemn. Him, I don't. He isn't a criminal.

        I'm not Christian, but there are a few sayings attributed to Jesus Cristo that I truly love, and live by:

        One is this: He who is without sin, throw the first stone.

        You must be impeccable in your history, because you're throwing boulders.
